UC SAN for Exchange 2010

Greetings Exchange people!

We're setting up an Exchange 2010 environment that consist of:

cas1.domain.local
cas2.domain.local
mailbox1.domain.local
mailbox2.domain.local


SAN fields I was thinking of:

webmail.domain.com
autodiscover.domain.com
cas1.domain.local
cas2.domain.local

1. Do I need to specify the FQDN to the mailbox servers in a SAN field?
2. I install the certificate on one CAS server, and export it to the other CAS. Correct?
3. Do I have to export the sertificate and install it on the mailbox servers?
4. Do I need the NETBIOS name to the CAS servers in a SAN field? If Yes, why?
5. Did I forget anything? :)

not at all

2.. I install the certificate on one CAS server, and export it to the other CAS. Correct?
Correct just export it with private key

3. Do I have to export the sertificate and install it on the mailbox servers?
No need

4. Do I need the NETBIOS name to the CAS servers in a SAN field? If Yes, why?
Nop not needed

5. Did I forget anything? :)

Yes you need the CAS array name if both cas1 and cas2 are in the same AD site

The two cas servers is in the same site and will be in an array.

If I call the CAS array for "cas.domain.local" (I assume I should use the internal domain?), do I need SAN fields for both CAS1.domain.local and CAS2.domain.local, or is it enough to use "CAS.domain.local"?

Thanks

cas.domain.local is enough

Just to be 100% sure, it will be sufficient with:

webmail.domain.com
autodiscover.domain.com
cas.domain.local

?
